Question How many Email Accounts can be configured with BIS plan

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

Why Only Ten BIS Accounts Can Be configured on a BlackBerry? Why not it is Eleven or Five? Whether there is any Specific Reason for that?

Regards

No clue. It is what it is. 10 seems to be plenty for me and for most users. I doubt there are very many people that use all 10.

Why are there 26 letters in the English alphabet? Why not 20? Why not 28? It just is. My guess is only a RIM engineer would be able to tell you why/how the 10 address limit came about.

I suggest, as John Clark has also noted, contact RIM for the answer to your question.

I'll guess.... RIM had to decide on some number, big enough for almost all customer needs, but reasonable, and once the designers and network and marketing people hashed it out, RIM settled on ten. That makes as much sense as anything, and I doubt there's any technical limitation that forced it to some particular number.
